Goals- Day One

I ate meat. Didn't even remember that I was trying to test drive being a vegetarian again. Lame.

On the plus side, this post comes to you live from my cellular device! Go technology!

Currently working on book 1-American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Only halfway through which sucks because book club is Sunday. This means I should be reading, not blogging.

Week in the Life project starts this weekend and I'm jacked. Real post explaining that to come.

I now leave you with a random picture of what the kids and I made for lunch last week.


Well, it's been almost a month so I guess it's time to do a new post.

This post is going to be short, simple and to the point...my goals.

There are quite a few things I want to go before the end of the year, and I figure this blog is as good of a place to write about them and hopefully keep me on track.

1. I would like to be out of credit card debt by December at the absolute latest.
2. Make a budget and stick to it. I spend too much money and need to learn to be more responsible with my income. I plan on going back to school as soon as possible, so I really need to start putting money aside for that.
3. Be more social. I work so much that in my free time, I tend to just hole up and do nothing but watch tv or sleep. I'd like to get out more and meet new people and develop friendships with people I'm only casually connected with.
4. Read 12 books by the end of December. This makes it a book every two weeks. I can re-read, they can be lame chick-lit books...I just want to read more.
5. Write at least once a week in some format. It can be journaling, blogging, creating stories, poetry, anything. I have to cultivate creativity and crawl through and write a bunch of shit before I'm truely going to find a good idea.
6. Trust more.
7. Anger slower.
8. Think less.
9. Compliment others more. I want to compliment at least one person a day.
10. Vegetarian? I have been struggling with this for a while now. I was a vegetarian for nearly 5 years and began to eat meat shortly after I graduated high school. Every time I stumble across PETA's website, or find PETA literature in a box at my house, or see a commercial about animal cruelty, I think about going back. I'm going to try starting tomorrow because I've been putting off starting for awhile now. I don't know if it's going to stick again, but I want to give it another try and see how it feels.

Well, that's it. 10 goals, some easier than others. Some specific, some vague. Wish me luck!
